cotton exports for now: trade minister
NEW DELHI: India will not allow additional cotton exports

registrations,” Sharma said after a panel of ministers met
to review cotton exports from India, after the world’s
second-largest producer banned shipments of the fibre last
Government and trade sources
said last month India was unlikely to allow new cotton
exports at the ministers’ meet and may not lift the ban at
least until July..
